Full description
Explore the ruins of Herculaneum, the smaller but no less impressive sister city of Pompeii, frozen in time by the same devastating volcanic eruption of 24 August 79 AD.

Traveling by private vehicle, drive along the motorway from Castellammare, arriving at Herculaneum approximately 1-hour to 90 minutes later. A former residential coastal town of the Roman Empire, the ruins of the city were superbly preserved by the torrent of volcanic material that rained down on it following the eruption of Vesuvius.

View the ruins from above, before tour of the buildings and streets to see well-preserved frescoes and mosaics of the public baths, a house of carbonized furniture with an intact marital bed and more. It’s thought that many of the town’s inhabitants managed to flee the city just in time but skeletons remain of some of those that didn't.

The tour takes in the most important sites, including shops and the public gymnasium, all brought to life by the experienced guide. Enjoy some free time for coffee before your return transfer to Sorrento.
